How to game the Salad Bar

submitted on March 25, 2011 by orangearrows in "Member's Lounge"
I have done it a few times myself where I would load up the expensive bits. Also red peppers are more expensive than green ones - eat those Smile .



Of course salad bars provide for a certain measure of convenience, but the ingredients I crosschecked were, on average, 70 percent more expensive at the salad bar than on the shelves. Cucumber, for instance, was just $1.49 per pound in the produce aisle. Other ingredients were more reasonably priced — and a few were actually cheaper at the salad-bar rate than anywhere else in the store, providing for “Moneyball”-like opportunities for arbitrage. So the fight against Big Salad Bar is winnable yet. Here are some suggestions to keep in mind:

    Here's my thoughts on salad bars! Sick people spewing all over the salad bar. Keep in mind this is just an opinion!
    But I like this post!

      Very true - also the above picture you see - it's dangerous to have open salads without the right temperature. If they are not cooled on ICE -- don't even think about eating open/cut veggies/fruits.

      I just finished a sneezing spell (my friends keep count.) Imagine people at an "All you can eat" restaurant while I was standing in line spewing!

      Also some restaurants add baking soda in their bread at the buffet. That fills us up faster

    I used to eat at salad bars a lot. Sweet Tomatoes is still one of my favorite lunch destinations. My appetite went down over the past years however and now I prefer Panera Bread or similar snack places now. The coffee is good you get free Wi-Fi Smile
